“Location and value, but structures need attention”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2009

The Hotel Caroline is a villa-style hotel located in the small village of Brusimpiano, adjacent to Lake Lugano and a 15-minute drive from the city. Since the hotel is on the Italian side of the lake, prices are in euros, and you should allow time to pass through customs on your way to and from Swiss destinations. It is well marked along the lakeside road up a short uphill drive adjacent to its associated pizza restaurant. There is an outdoor pool above the restaurant, but the hotel does not have a view of the lake. The main entrance is adjacent to the pool, and WiFi available at 5 euro charge from the lobby, There were some problems at check-in: the online rate that I was quoted was revised upward by 10 euro: be sure to bring your receipt to protect your discount.

Rooms are located in the main villa or in the coachhouse across the parking lot: I stayed in the lower room of the outbuilding. The doorknob was broken from the inside, so the only exit was through the sliding door: the room was otherwise clean and comfortable. The TV picks up a few local channels; the bed was comfortable although the pillows were minimal. The tiled bathroom included a large tub with a hand shower: there was adequate hot water and pressure.

A breakfast buffet is served in the main villa, and is very good. A variety of pastries, fresh coffee, cheeses and meats, cereals, fruits and juices were available. The restaurant is also good: their pizzas are huge and easily serve two people. This is a good economical alternative to the much more expensive resort properties across the lake, but there were a few problems that interfered with the otherwise nice food and ambience.
